Staniel Cay Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay on Staniel Cay. Reasonable price, centrally located, easy walk to most everywhere on the Island. James is very gracious and helpful. Set us up with a good boat tour guide. 3 minute walk to the airport, 10 minute walk to the yacht club.

Excellent Character

  • 5 of 5

I had booked the home prior to Hurricane Irma and for some reason or another, this also corresponded to a hack onto Jame's computer which lead to me cancelling our stay with James. James immediately contacted me to explain and unfortunately I had already booked with someone else at that time and had to continue with the cancellation. James immediately refunded me, no questions asked and continues to offer his help if case we need anything. Even though I've never met James in person, I can tell he is a man of character and virtue. Appreciate all your help again and until next time! Kevin

The Good Life was like a home away from home. When we were not out cruising around in the golf cart, swimming or on an adventure we could come back "home" , take a shower and watch some tv or surf the net. Very clean.

Clean, Comfortable, and a Great Expierence!

  • 5 of 5

James and Lorraine were wonderful people. The house felt like home as soon as you walked in and was very comfortable to sleep in. The air conditioning was perfect and kept the place nice and cool to walk into on a very hot day. The Good Life is located in the center of everything and surrounded by beaches that are within a 10 minute walking distance which a great excercise before jumping in the most beautiful water you'll ever see on this side of the world. It's best to rent a golf cart with the house in case you want to make a quick drive anywhere or have multiple things planned in one day plus its really fun to drive it around on the island. I recommend The Good Life and will definitely rent it again when coming back to Stanley Cay.
